What length lever arm are you using? Your lever arm length and drive wheel diameter look around the same as mine, yet my lever arm is almost all the way down when running regional rules.

Hey, I just saw this now! I saw those two proctors at BARSO yesterday; they were there for my trial. I have a quick question regarding your vehicle. How were you able to get your lever arm to start going forward to slow down the car while it approaches the CTP? Like for my vehicle, my mousetraps are in the front, and the lever arm always goes forward regardless of the direction I wind the string. Did you use a pulley system or something to get your lever arm to start going in the opposite direction? Thank you so much!

that's the string winding back onto the axle because the car has momentum. It'll pull the lever arm back with it too.
